Insulating Canada since 1976
The origin of KAEFER Integrated Services Ltd. goes back to 1976 when Michael (Mike) T. Mathisen (1944 - 1998) began his industrial and mechanical insulation business in Grande Prairie, Alberta. Convinced there was a great need for a service-oriented mechanical insulation company, Mike began to insulate throughout the Peace River region, together with a couple of employees.
He established Albrico (stands for Alberta and British Columbia) in Grande Prairie and continued to grow its scope and area of work to several more locations in Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon and the Northwest Territories. Within six years and with the help of two new partners, the company was incorporated to become Albrico Services (1982) Ltd.
The company continued to grow in size and skill over the years. It has been successfully completing industrial and commercial insulation jobs throughout Western Canada and the North when it was acquired by the KAEFER Group in 2008 to form ALBRICO KAEFER.
A rebranding and amalgamation of KAEFER's business operations throughout Canada in 2015 resulted in the company's current name of KAEFER Integrated Services Ltd.
